Trust

Jeremiah 17:5-8

Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord

He will be like a bush in the wastelands;
he will not see prosperity when it comes.
He will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.

But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.

He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought adn never fails to bear fruit.


Is trust in God enough?  Most times in my life I have acted like it is not, rather I have trusted in others and myself.  To which I have found myself broken and empty.  Not intentionally I have turned from the Lord.  My spirit and psycological self has felt like I am in a wasteland, parched and thirsty.  Though I knew God since a child I didn't have roots in him.  I was slave to my own desires while trying to allow God to master my heart.  Both in Mathew 6 and Luke 16 there is reference to the impossiblity to serve two masters (money and God).  I would suggest that I can't allow "man" to master me and the Lord.  They conflict with God's design laid out in the beginning (Genesis).  Are you trying to serve two masters?  Is it working?
